Description

This book describes the various ‘Green Technologies’ that either do not produce any greenhouse gases nor any pollutants nor do they depend on the earth’s scant resources of oil and other fossil fuels. A relatively poor country like India has to uplift itself while at the same time meet the world’s demands for mitigating climate change. This is the crux of the matter: the book shows how we can derive business and industrialization benefits from our climate change activities so that the resulting development may be able to justify the advantage by going along with the developed world and reducing our emissions.

The book indicates the direction in which business and technology is likely to develop in future, and will be invaluable for developers, town-planners and architects who will  nd new guidelines in designing ‘green buildings’ and ‘green districts’ and a new road-map for designing new townships and cities; engineers and infrastructure handlers, who will value the discussion on the country’s resources in conceiving infrastructure and maintaining it by using minimum resources; and industrialists and business people in general, who will see the wide variety of business opportunities green technologies will create for everybody.
